This beautiful Antique French issue Postcard is an advertising endorsement by famed Opera star..Charlotte Wyns..who starred as Messaline in the 1904 production of the Opera of the same name. It is one of the first (and finest) examples of famous stage stars used to advertise every day items. In this case a face creame called Crème Simon...
..Crème Simon is a French skincare brand founded in 1860 by Joseph Simon, which used rising stars to advertise its products, and some of the earliest endorsements came from the leading Opera stars of the day. Their series of advertising postcards are now some of the most beautiful Art Nouveau era cards to be found.
With Charlotte Wyns hand written endorsement and singer's signature at the bottom it was issued by Imp. H Laas, E Pecaud et Cie, Paris.
Postally un-used and clean verso it is in excellent Antique condition.
I am listing several more Crème Simon advertising postcards today.
